Hear yea hear yea, it chilly out there.
I want to apologize for the lack of warning over the post purge. Defeated the whole point of these announcements. Please read my post about it just above this post, and don't be afraid to tell me how you're feeling. You can absolutely be mad and don't need to apologize for it.
A lot of things are being removed from the site like the chat and some MBs as I'm sure you've all noticed. We've moved pretty much all our resources over into building a new project, the one that I've been teasing. This is why we've had to cut down some older stuff that required maintenance. What's coming is a new world that is basically everything you can do here.... but more. You'll have more freedom in how you present yourself as there are avatars, you'll be able to chat with each other, have new games to play, and I'm planning a ton of new events and activities that will be in it. I want you to know we're not just getting rid of stuff for no reason or without any plans to have new things for you.
@Fallon thank you! I had a very cozy Thanksgiving and I ate a lot of pie. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well :)
@Cora it will be part of the new project we're developing, which I can't give a date on. All I can say is I keep not realizing just how soon it will be coming @_@
@Lupa It's in the library! Next to "The History of Scholastica pt 2"
@Wizard is it your OCs for thread /347115? If so, the big reason it's getting stuck is your character names are too "real" aka the filter thinks you're giving out real first names and last names. You can try doing just a first name, or try making them more fantastical.
I found one more, and this one is less clear why it didn't make it through. It's your thread with a new RP about survivors after a sickness infects a town. First, I'd try submitting again, sometimes multiple submissions is the solution. If not, try removing some times you mention shipping/crushes. I know it's for an RP but that might be holding it up.
@Sorrel I posted your report in our team chat. I thought what could be causing it is a broken redirect, since Planet Pilkey is a part of the Scholastic site, but we couldn't reproduce it and the redirect seems to be working. So there are a few things I'd try that might help:
1. try in incognito mode
2. try signing in on the kids homepage first, and then navigating to the forums (this is the home page: https://www.scholastic.com/kids/home/)
3. It's possible an adblocking software is blocking the login overlay, if you have an adblocker you can try whitelisting the site
4. Update your browser, if it has updates pending
5. Try using a different browser if possible, and see if the same thing happens there
Those are some suggestions I have for you and anyone else who's having trouble with log-in. We're going to keep investigating, I know Angie had an issue with login as well and Nova has that weird issue with being logged out every time they close the tab. So there are a few things we're looking into.
@Boop yep, admin posts avoid the filter. Though there was an issue where my posts would get sent to the filter after they were posted (that's why we're on our third Town Square here >.< Apparently my posts got caught by the filter! Grr) but that's fixed now.
@Freedom Ha to be fair I haven't picked it up in a month or so (I've been busy playing Spiderman), but I play on PC and sometimes PS4! Before I joined here at Scholastic my coworkers and I used to hang around the office after work and play together. Now I need to find my Fortnite Scholasticrew.
@Scientist Listen the town square isn't going to just pay for itself u know! Real answer - I'm helping design the community features and events for our new project. There's going to be a lot of new content, and someone has to make it!
-The first day of snow ever on a tropical island
-A hat that can control the actions of it's wearer
Zero has started a new story aptly titled "Zero's Story": /347218
Snapple started a very detailed WoF RP: /347093
I know it's exciting when it's your birthday and you want to post about it, but birthdays are considered personal information and are against the rules of the forum. Please resist posting that it's your bday! Instead, celebrate your forum bday aka the day you joined ^_^
@Alphawolf threads solely about receiving or giving out stars is star farming, please don't do this.
